About George Fairbairn | Photographer


George was born outside of Chicago, is obsessed with all things science, and moved to the UK for his love of proper football, a full English breakfast, and Yorkshire puddings. George turned down a scholarship for photography to the Art Institute of Seattle after High School because he didn’t want to move away from Chicago….two years later he was stationed in England in the US Air Force! Since coming out of the service, George has turned his attention back to photography and is now a well respected advertising and editorial portrait photographer. George is known for his powerful, story telling portraits and his ability to photograph anyone absolutely anywhere.  Specialising in advertising portraiture George has had the privilege of shooting advertising campaigns as well as promotional and commercial portraits for bands, musicians, and celebrities. George has been a photographer for, or currently shoots for magazines such as Kerrang!, Rocksound, Total Guitar, Rhythm, and more.  Currently residing outside of Cambridge, George still thinks the English weather isn’t all that bad and has hopes of Cambridge United one day make it into the Premier League.  Though George resides outside of Cambridge, he works frequently in London as well as across the UK and Europe.
